Elon Musk says the Starlink internet service will leave beta in October

Updated: Sep 22, 2021

SpaceX's Starlink Satellite Broadband will no longer be considered a test. Elon Musk told Twitter users that Starlink should release the beta "next month" - that is, in October. You can theoretically utilize the accommodation more expeditious than customary in more countries, or at least without the stigma of beta testing.


The company aimed to have full worldwide coverage by September. To date, with significant exceptions such as Australia, Chile and New Zealand, the beta is largely confined to parts of North America and Europe. The orchestrated expansion is so far constrained to Mexico and Japan, but SpaceX has registered subsidiaries in countries such as the Philippines and South Africa.



Launch The formal launch can be crucial. SpaceX verbalized it shipped 100,000 Starlink terminals by the cessation of August, but that number is liable to increment as the beta label vanishes and more countries gain access. And while satellite accommodation is far from incipient, Starlink’s high bandwidth and low latency can avail close the gap for broadband in rural areas and developing countries where traditional Internet access is either not available or too slow to be practical.


This, of course, comes from Starlink as promised. Musk and his companies have a history of optimistic timelines for projects that are hampered by technical barriers and other practical realities. An October launch certainly isn't out of the question, but you might not optate to orchestrate your schedule around that launch just yet.
